5 Questions to Ask When Shopping for a Latex Mattress

Buying a latex mattress can be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make for the quality of your sleep, and the overall health of your family. While you’re shopping for your new latex mattress there are a few questions you’ll want to make sure you have the answers to, though.

Ask Questions

These are five questions you should ask when shopping for a latex mattress for yourself, your home, or someone you love.

  1. What Materials are in the Mattress?

Mattress materials matter. When you think about it, the average person spends more time on their mattresses than in office chairs, living room sofas, and in the car. Yet the mattress buying process is often an afterthought as far as the potentially harmful materials that go into them. The best latex mattresses contain quality, natural ingredients, such as pure botanical latex, premium organic cotton, and pure wool.

More importantly, they do not contain many of the harmful materials found in other types of mattresses, such as polyurethane, toxic chemicals, heavy metals, formaldehyde, and other synthetic fillers.

  1. Where is the Mattress Made?

The location where the mattress is made matters not only for quality controls and adherence to local regulations, but also to the distance the mattress must travel (and carbon footprint involved) of getting it to your home. Latex for Less mattresses are handcrafted in the United States with strict quality control requirements.

This means that you know where your mattress is coming from, and understand the quality standards for the making of the mattress and the impact the process has on the planet. More importantly, your mattress doesn’t spend months crossing large oceans to get to you. Our mattresses are handcrafted when you order them. That means they don’t sit in large warehouses waiting for someone to purchase them, either.

  1. Is there a Mattress Warranty?

A mattress warranty tells you a lot about the mattress you are buying. It is the manufacturer’s way of telling you how firmly they stand behind the product they’ve made. The longer the warranty, the longer they believe your mattress will stand up to the tests of time and standard wear and tear.

Latex for Less mattresses come with a 20-year limited warranty that is not prorated. That means from the day you bring your mattress home, they will make necessary repairs to your mattress. Considering the average mattress lasts seven years, this warranty is an amazing promise to consumers like you.

  1. What if it’s Not the Right Fit for You?

No matter how much time you spend reading about the many benefits or pros and cons of latex mattresses, until you’ve tried sleeping on one for at least a month, it is nearly impossible to know if it is the right mattress option for you.

Latex for Less understands this, and offers you multiple options for making the mattress a better fit or returning it as painlessly as possible, including:

  • Two Firmness Levels in One Mattress. One side is firm. However, if you flip the Latex for Less mattress over, the other side is medium. This offers more options to find the right fit to meet your needs than people get with a standard latex mattress .
  • Mattress Toppers. Some people find that even with the medium option, the latex mattress is simply too firm. When this occurs, you always have the option of ordering a Latex for Less Topper to add an extra layer of cushiony comfort. Toppers are available in soft, medium, and medium-firm, and are either two or three inches thick.
  • 120-Night Risk-Free In-Home Trial. Try the Latex for Less mattress risk-free in your home for 120 nights. This gives you an opportunity to try both sides on for size to see if the other might be a better match for you, and to return it on us if you’re not satisfied.

There is nothing to lose, and so much to gain by trying out our latex mattresses.

  1. Is the Mattress Affordable?

Some people balk at the price of premium latex mattresses on the market today. Considering the average lifespan of these mattresses is roughly three times longer than other traditional mattresses, it is a solid investment. However, Latex for Less takes it one step further by offering affordable mattresses that do not sacrifice the quality or comfort you expect from your latex mattress.

Try Latex for Less today, and see what a difference it makes for the amount of sleep you get, and your sleep quality as well. Contact us if you have any questions about our mattresses or accessories. Call us at 1-888-280-8345 Toll-Free. We’re available 7 days a week from 9am - 9pm PST.
